1 store-bought yellow cake
Green food coloring
Store-bought butter cream
Yellow candy melts
Bake a nine-by-thirteen-inch sheet cake with a box of store-bought yellow cake mix. Let the cake cool completely and crumble into a large bowl.
Stir in 1 1/3 cups of store-bought buttercream frosting and mix well, mixing cake and frosting together with your hands until you have a texture that is wet, smooth and able to be formed.
Roll mixture into balls 1 1/2-inches in diameter and place on a baking tray lined with wax paper.
Freeze for fifteen minutes. Move to the refrigerator to keep them firm but not frozen. Work with a few cake balls at a time while, keeping the remainder in the fridge.
To make a cake pop, dip the tip of a lollipop stick in melted candy melts and insert gently in the cake ball. Then dip the cake pop in melted candy melts and decorate.
To melt chocolate or candy melts on the stove top:
Place two cups of chocolate chips or one pound (one bag) of candy melts in the top of the double boiler or in your heat-safe bowl sitting over a saucepan of simmering water.
Stir occasionally. When most of the chips appear shiny and start to melt, stir constantly. When most of the chips or melts are fully melted, remove from heat and stir until completely melted.
Pour a few drops of green food coloring on a palette or piece of wax paper. Carefully use the paintbrush to paint lollipop sticks green and set aside on wax paper to dry completely.
Working with one cake pop at a time, dip the tip of your lollipop stick in the candy melts, insert into a chilled cake ball, and dip cake ball in the candy melts.
Hold the cake pop over a bowl or plate and sprinkle sprinkles generously over it to coat completely.
Stand the cake pop in a Styrofoam block to set well.
Trace the daisy cookie cutter or use the template to draw a flower on the bright or printed card stock. Cut out the flower and make a hole in the center with a toothpick or a pin.
Fold green card stock, hold the leaf template against the fold (don’t cut the fold), and cut out the leaf shape.
Slide flower cut-out on the stick under the cake pop.
Unfold and glue the entire inside of the leaf, including the band. Wrap the leaf around the stick just under the flower. Let the glue dry.
